As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed—“Almost rather I had seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!”
      “What was it, Sir?” said Flask.
      “The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld and returned to their ports to tell of it.”

Moby-Dick, 1851

Guys, FURL sucks. It has sucked for years, and I'm sorry I've been using it. I have switched over to delicious; I would have done this much sooner, but they made it really difficult the last time I tried.

Uhmm, apparently archives haven't really been working since late 2006. THANX for the heads up guys! They are temporarily fixed, and will stay temporarily fixed until I migrate to new software/layout. I have said some hilarious things in the last 7 years, that future generations will feel lucky I preserved. Go check them out.

Woah, it's been 3 years since the last news update! Fuzzysquid now has a webclips icon for your iPhone! It'll automagically show up when you add FS to your home screen. Atom and RSS feeds have been available for a few years now, but I never made special mention of it.

Since it seems to be popular, and it's been linked in a lot of different places besides here, I've decided to post the LJ Images page. At least in the news, at least for now. It's also getting some Google ads because you LiveJournal people are sucking up all my bandwidth (35% for that one page!)

Check out what I've been browsing: FURL.net bookmark archive. Not much commentary, relevance, or sequitur—but it's what's keeping this blog from turning into a meme dumpster.

Now that the embargo is lifted I will tell you this: dating older women has several advantages. One of which is something I refer to as Economic Reciprocity in Relativistic Equality. Or "ERRE". (To pronounce it correctly, say "air" as if you were a pirate.) In its simplest terms, it is a way for you and your woman to go dutch while maintaining a comfortable amount of chivalry. So you make Y amount of money, and (hopefully) your girl, who is X years older, and has that many more years of work experience than you, earns a bit more. But if the numbers are right, you are relativistically speaking still afforded the ability to be gallant because adjusted for the difference in years, you are, in fact, able to "take care of her." So to speak. The absolutely brilliant part is, because you're in the same economic situation, you can go do all the things you like to do without worrying about it being too cheap/expensive, and you can freely alternate ponying up for the bill and know that it will all work out to dollar neutrality in the end! The two variables in our equation are your salary, and her age; adjust each accordingly. And that my friends, is the relationship economics version of having your cake and eating it too. Until she announces that she wants a diamond. The End.
